Raja Ampat

THE LAST PARADISE

The Raja Ampat Islands, situated near the Northwest coast of Papua, consists of about 1.500 islands, including several large, mountainous islands, the largest being Waigeo, Batanta, Salawati and Misool. 

"The Four Kings", which ist he meaning of Raja Ampat, is is well known as a diving heaven for people all around the world. The oceanic natural resources around Raja Ampat give it significant potential as a tourist area. Many sources place Raja Ampat as one of their Top ten places for diving whilst it retains the number one ranking in terms of underwater biodiversity.

According to Conservation International, marine surveys suggest that the marine life diversity in the Raja Ampat area is the highest recorded on Earth. Diversity is considerably greater than any other area sampled in the Coral Triangle composed of Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands and East Timor. The Coral Triangle is the heart of the world's coral reef biodiversity, making Raja Ampat quite possibly the richest coral reef ecosystems in the world.

The area's massive coral colonies along with relatively high sea surface temperatures, also suggest that its reefs may be relatively resistant to threats like coral bleaching and coral disease, which now jeopardize the survival of other coral ecosystems around the world. The Raja Ampat islands are remote and relatively undisturbed by humans.

How to get there

The nearest major airport to the Raja Ampat islands is in the mainland city of Sorong. There are flights here from the likes of Jakarta, Pulau Ambon (Maluku), Jayapura (Papua), Manado and Makassar (Sulawesi). From Sorong it’s a short ferry ride to Waisai, on the island of Waigeo, where homestay operators will pick you up. Most top-end dive resorts and liveaboards will pick you up from Sorong.

Where to stay

You can find three categories of accommodation in Raja Ampat: a growing number of homestays - Pulau Kri and Pulau Gam have particularly rich pickings. Many homestays also offer diving, but safety standards and equipment maintenance can be questionable.

For divers, there are a many quality dedicated dive resorts in the region which generally offer one- to two-week packages including transfers, meals and a couple of dives per day. 

Finally, there are liveaboard dive boats, which are essentially floating dive resorts which sail from one coral reef to the next.
